We gave it a D

Ex-Fugee Pras seems like a swell guy. On his second solo disc, Win, Lose, or Draw, he empathizes with immigrants (”For Love”), apologizes to an ex (”Mistakes”), and disavows the thug life. But the feel-good vibe can’t disguise the obvious: Pras’ flow is as exciting as C-SPAN. Add a reliance on trite sentiments, bland hooks, and the schlocky U2-inspired atrocity ”Haven’t Found,” and listeners will be begging for a Fugees reunion.
